I started as a new grad in home care. I did 2 visits with my DON and she set me loose. I do not recommend her method! After 2-3 months of doing visits I became a FT case manager. I have been doing it now for 2 1/2 years, and feel really pretty confident in the types of cares we are doing. We have been getting more infusion clients and have been learning more about that. We also do wound care, and alot of chronic diseases management. Some post-ops, cancer tx, etc. What saved me on many occasions was having a natural ability to make clients THINK I know what I'm doing, even when I don't!
But, I know when to ask questions, and I do every time. I would say something like " well, that's beyond my training, so lets give so-and-so a call to see what they would advise". As long as the client can look to you to either know the answer or attain the answer, it all works out in the end. I enjoy the flexibility in my schedule, driving around the countryside on nice days, and being 1:1 with clients. You really get to know people well.
